Enterprise File Security Solutions Allow Organisations to Embrace Mobility

Vaultize, an enterprise file security leader and BYOD solution provider, has announced that it has been granted a US patent for its Vault KNOX file security.

The patent is titled System and Method for combining encryption and de-duplication of data, and will be core to Vaultize's enterprise file security platform.

The patent grant affirms Vaultize's position as one of the most secure and most efficient enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) and mobile collaboration solutions in the world.

With this patent, Vaultize co-founders Anand Kekre (CEO) and Ankur Panchbudhe (CTO) take their count of US patents to 59 and 32 respectively, across information security, data protection, storage, virtualisation and distributed computing.

Vault KNOX technology will become a core component of Vaultize's enterprise file security platform. It will perform military-grade encryption and content-aware data de-duplication, both together at the source, on end user devices such as laptops, desktops, smartphones or tablets.

Doing encryption at-source will ensure that data remains private to the end user, and stays secure while it is travelling over the network, while it is stored in Vaultize cloud and while it gets shared with collaborators.

Content-aware global de-duplication can reduce the amount of data that is required to be sent over the network (and stored in Vaultize cloud). This, in-turn, can make the file sharing and collaboration even more seamless and efficient. This technology will allow end-to-end security and privacy of corporate data, alongside efficiency and increased productivity for users.

In Vault KNOX, Vaultize will be able to successfully overcome the challenge of integrating both security and efficiency together, making it an ideal solution for both enterprise IT and end users.

Solutions with these attributes help serve enterprises in industries such as BFSI (banks, financial services and insurance), media, healthcare, manufacturing, automotive, education and governments to protect their sensitive data without compromising the end user experience. This is a crucial component for enterprise IT and digital deployments in the current business environment.

Combined with built-in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and DRM capabilities, the Vaultize platform also helps enterprises embrace BYOD, even in highly regulated and security-conscious verticals, including Fortune 500s.
